I am upgrading from FFmpeg 2.8.4 to 3.1.1, and changing code to not use
AVStream.codec anymore. By doing so, I get a memory leak with valgrind,
here's the trace
==15481== at 0x4A07306: memalign (vg_replace_malloc.c:532)
==15481== by 0x4A0735F: posix_memalign (vg_replace_malloc.c:660)
==15481== by 0x6EA3E48: av_malloc (mem.c:97)
==15481== by 0x6EA4165: av_mallocz (mem.c:254)
==15481== by 0x599D3E8: init_context_defaults (options.c:127)
==15481== by 0x599D540: avcodec_alloc_context3 (options.c:163)
==15481== by 0x6BDED26: avformat_new_stream (utils.c:4098)
Seems like AVCodecContext.priv_data is not being freed.
Looking at the code, the AVStream.codec is still being allocated by you and
Because I am experiencing a leak, shouldn't that line be
avcodec_free_context(&st->codec) or avcodec_close(st->codec) as it is an
I used to close st->codec myself before this deprecation.
What am I missing here?
